Welcome to Davidson Creek Library
Hello and welcome to Davidson Creek Elementary and the Library Learning Commons! I am so excited to be sharing a love of reading, learning and discovery in this beautiful new space.
Students, I would love to hear what you have been reading over the summer as well as what some of your favourite books are. If you need any suggestions of what to read next, I can also share with you some of my favourite titles or you can click here to see a list of some of my favourites.
Did you know you can look for library books on the Destiny website? You can even rate and review books, as well as find links to fun websites.
Instead of wading through thousands of Google search results, why not try the Online Reference Centre (ORC). The ORC provides digital resources that support Alberta's K-12 learning. To access the ORC, please ask Mrs. Eng for the username and password.
You may also want to try the following online resources for research:
- The Canadian Encyclopedia
- CIA World Factbook
- Canadian Geographic Kids Atlas
- Merriam-Webster Word Central
- Dictionary of Canadian Biography Online
If you do use Goggle to search for information, it is a good idea to evaluate your search results. To do this, you can read the Five W's of Web Site Evaluation. Listed below is a summary of the website:
- WHO wrote the pages and what are their credentials?
- WHAT is the purpose of the site adn is this stated clearly?
- WHEN was the site created? When was it last updated?
- WHERE does the information come from?
- WHY is this page better than other sites?
